3" dresden plate, with 8 petals and centre circle.
The centre circle is designed to be appliqued over the plate. To acheive this simply make a running stitch around the circle and pull the threads so the fabric gathers over the paper template, press a hot iron on the gathered side to keep the shape. Applique directly onto the centre of the Dresden plate.
